In the town of Donetsk, Rostovska oblast, Russia, police detained the car of the STB TV channel filming crew, which wanted to visit the trial of Nadiya Savchenko. The first reason the police officer gave for detention was that the people in the car were not buckled properly but that was not true. Later, they were told police had some doubts about their ID documents. Ukrainian consul Moskalenko and Ilya Novikov, Savchenko's attorney, were summoned by the filming crew to the police station they were brought to. Later they were released after having to write a written explanation on when and were they crossed the border with Russia.
